As part of the UCLA Health System, our Division of Dermatology focuses on achieving excellence in patient care, medical education and scientific research. Our faculty and staff provide expert care in treating conditions of the skin, hair and nails.

Patient Focus at UCLA Dermatology

Our board-certified specialists work in teams to bring together multidisciplinary skills and knowledge based on high-quality clinical research. We focus particularly on caring for our patients with medical and therapeutic expertise as well as support and compassion.

At UCLA Dermatology, our goals are to:

  • Provide outstanding individualized diagnosis and treatment of skin disease
  • Educate the next generation of physicians and scientists to become leaders in medical dermatology, cosmetic dermatology, dermatologic surgery, dermatopathology and investigative dermatology
  • Develop new and better strategies to diagnose and treat skin disease through innovative research

Explore the many ways you can support the Division–whether through outright or deferred gifts. Deferred gifts include those that provide flexibility (such as including UCLA in your will or trust, or naming UCLA as a beneficiary of your retirement account or life insurance policy) and gifts that produce tax savings and income for life (such as a charitable gift annuity or charitable remainder trust). Gifts of appreciated securities or real estate are a wonderful way to fulfill both your philanthropic and financial goals while supporting the Division.
